The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to put content access limits in regards to your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other files or any private information in your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to manage different sites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published online and subsequently edited using an FTP account that has access to its own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
